How to Meditate in Emergencies by Billie Topa Tate
Dear Busy Mystic,
It all begins with a our daily schedule… In addition to our daily projects we may encounter a crisis or stressful event that surprises us and takes us off our center.
Today, I will share with you a wonderful short burst change to integrate into our busy schedule. Stress slowly creeps up on us and we find ourselves emotionally stressed, and sometimes we encounter a crisis.
During these difficult times of stress we often forget self care practices. It is very important to find ways of using energetic techniques to intervene and provide opportunities for not only self care but wisdom filled practices. This will help our body and mind to stay in a more productive place and strive for happiness and peace.
Today you’ll find that these simple techniques will help you to be in a more productive and peaceful place when crisis occurs.
Just as a point of information – practicing meditation on a daily basis anchors and promotes a wisdom filled breath that helps us to be more present, wise and peaceful even under the most stressful conditions.
Here are some great techniques to use to quickly go into a more peaceful place during crisis, trauma and stressful activities.
1) The Panic Diffuser
One of the most simple and powerful techniques used by advanced meditation practitioners is known as the panic and or worry diffuser. This is also sometimes referred to as the thought and emotion stopping technique.
First, if you find that you’re going into panic during a crisis – do the following – sharply say to your mind “STOP”. Use a very loud internal voice so that your mind sees you mean business. If it’s possible and you are by yourself , say it out loud. After you say “STOP”. focus on your breath. Breathe in through your nose and then release the breath through the mouth ( this will relieve the tension ) relax your shoulders and then breathe in through your nose slowly as if you are at the ocean and as you exhale- exhale slowly through the mouth while relaxing your jaw, your shoulders, your neck and your spine. Continue the breath and now breathe in and out of your nose.
Once you have calm down and can think more productively, continue what you’re doing by moving calmly to tend to whatever needs to be done.
2) Heart Center Intervention
Your heart center has a vibration that will help you during the times of emergencies and crisis. This technique is simple and powerful and will help you even when you’re trying to get projects done.
Place your less predominate hand on the middle of your chest focusing on your heart if you like you can place both hands one on top of the other on the heart center. The next thing is allow for your breath to shift into the heart imagining healing light coming from your heart and emanating out from the chest into the entire body. Focus on the heart center like a sphere of light. Let it emanate out to the entire body as you do this allow for the breath to come in through your nose then exhale through your mouth a couple of times and then coming back to a few moments of syncing your breath with the rhythm of a peaceful soft slow beat of your heart. Inhaling and exhaling through your nose.
As you calm down invoke to have wisdom as you move forward to resolve whatever is in front of you
These are wonderful tools to help you during an emergency or crisis. Remaining calm and centered is the most important energy for any crisis or stressful situation.
An interesting point here is that police officers, nurses, paramedics and firefighters all prepare very well for a crisis so when a crisis comes they know what to do. This is very much like your meditation practice. If we meditate every day we will go into that sacred breath that will allow us to do what we need to do but not in a stressful way.
I wish you peace and that you follow the integrity of your divine light.

MANTRA WELLNESS TECHNIQUES by Billie Topa Tate
During my mystical journey of learning how energy works and how our mind, body and spirit uses energy, I came across mantra’s and energy tools to stay focused. This would infuse my energy by not allowing my mind to lead me down a stressful and depleted thought path which robs us all of vitality and meaningful focus.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to what I call “Mantra Wellness“. The word Mantra typically means a tool to focus the mind. Mantra’s are also a set of words that are repeated with simple variations of breath that helps the mind shift a thought process to a higher vibration thus freeing us of a overwhelming idea that we are either feeling emotionally exhausted or somehow losing our vitality.
There are so many ways of using mantra. You do not have to sit and take long periods of time to say a mantra. These days we are very busy mystics and I have found that a meaningful string of words can shift of breath, thinking and reboot our nervous system. Which helps us take the plunge of getting things done while still achieving balance during our daily activities. I like to say… “Find Your Balance – Find Your Peace”
Here are some Mantra’s you can use to achieve oneness with peace and wisdom…
- When you feel like you have lost your harmony and peace
Mantra: “I place in my mind what I would like to see and this will set it in motion, because everything is energy and energy follows thought”
- When you feel that someone in your life is not adding value
Mantra: “I will set my energetic boundaries within my mind to create what I feel I need in the quality of honor and wisdom, and this will be my anchor to manifest my new tools”
- When you feel overwhelmed and rushed with a project or task
Mantra: “ I have the time I need to do this project because time and space will be launched through my breath and my thoughts, my breath will be filled with grace and wisdom”
- A general and powerful mantra that can be used in most situations is
Mantra: Om Shanti Shanti, Om Shanti Shanti, Om Shanti Shanti. Use your breath like you are smelling a wonderful fragrant flower which helps sweeten the mantra
These mantras will help you relax your mind, body, spirit and find your sacred balance and also build stress resilience.
I look forward to hearing about your progress and remember “Find Your Balance – Find Your Peace.”
All Good Things to You,

Lunar Eclipse & Full Moon Free Guided Meditation
Happy Lunar Eclipse & Full Moon in the sign of Capricorn. This time is pressing us to look more closely at the needs and wants in our lives regarding our private lives, our need for a home base, and nurturance (represented by the Sun in Cancer). These aspects versus our public lives, careers, reputation, and accountability (represented by the Sun’s opposition to the Moon in Capricorn).
This is a good time for gentle cleanses, gentle detoxing of body, mind and spirit. You are welcome to use our free meditation on our website for a gentle energy cleanse called the loving kindness meditation. Also, because of all the eclipses this month we have a heightened awareness of the inner workings of our lives, particularly in our career and our home and family. Decisions made now may be emotionally driven, that is why mediation is so important.
This Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is aligned with Pluto and is powerful and complicated at once. The need to take action might feel urgent, but it’s better to adopt a wait and see approach since there is quite a bit of exaggeration energy at the time of the eclipse.

Morning Native Drumming Sacred Intention with Billie Topa Tate
Native Americans were taught that our consciousness was a gift from the Creator which can manifest energy for our future, present and past, as well as, channel energy even to create harmonious pathways when we travel the desert and created sacred spaces, also transformed regions.
Simple Steps to Creating a Sacred Intention…
- Sanction a quiet moment – Take time to sanction a quiet time for you to totally focus on your expressed desire ( sacred intention ), this could be 5- 10 minutes or as long a 30 minr depending upon the depth of the sacred intention.
- Create a mindful wisdom filled expressed desire – option to write down your sacred intention. This step is about either writing down your sacred intention or formulated your thoughts, images and emotions about what you are asking for.
- Expression of divine love – Think of a time when wonderful friend, teacher or even a loving companion animal has touched your life and has spent precious time with you. During these thoughts, images and feelings, experience divine love.

Happy New Moon Message from Billie Topa Tate
Happy New Moon …
This wonderful New Moon will last up to 4 weeks. The end of one cycle (which was quite interesting) and the beginning of a powerful new cycle. This month provides an infusion of energy and a new fresh start which can help anyone launch an important part of their dreams.
The heavens provide an avenue of wonderful energy. The best possible way to prepare for the New Moon (Friday April 5th) is to concentrate on our energy toward new wisdom filled thoughts and timeless ancient traditions. Wonderful examples are meditation, clearing our energy field and strategizing on what we want to represent to the world and our journey.
How to take advantage of this wonderful New Moon. We have the chance to make important changes in our lives.
- Make some solid yet realistic plans.
- Set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be.
We are in a rare astrological window when none of the major planets/bodies are retrograde! Things may very well swim along after this check-in with reality.
